The old, boring way
composer update vendor/package
git checkout -b fix/update-package
git commit composer.lock -m "Update vendor/package"
git push origin fix/update-package
- Open pull request
- Wait for tests to pass
- Repeat for all projects with the same dependency
The new, easy way
How does it work?
Think of Violinist as a member of your team. Imagine assigning composer package updates to said team member.
Violinist will dutifully check all of your projects for composer package updates. It will create a sensible commit message, and a useful merge request. You can test, review and merge just like your regular workflow. It's the reliability of a machine combined with the discipline of a dutiful team member. And since it is not healthy to expect your team members to work around the clock, assigning a machine to work around the clock makes updates more reliable and less fatiguing!

Integrates with your VCS provider
Violinist.io integrates into your existing workflow. Whether you are using Github, Bitbucket, Gitlab (hosted or self-hosted) we got you covered. And since Violinist.io only creates pull requests, your existing workflow of code review, CI and CD will work just as normal!
Extensive feature list to fit your workflow
Do you need to get notifications on package updates that are not compatible with your project? Do you have private packages with only ssh access? Do you want to customize messages per project, or assign people to review PRs? No worries, we got you covered!
Update with confidence
Every pull request comes with a changelog for the updated packages. This way you can get a quick view of the changes you are about to merge in, and even browse the commit if you want the detailed view.
